It's been a year or so since our last CPK lunch/dinner. I wonder why it took us that long to go back. Maybe because we were really on uber-stingy mode since the start of this year.

California Pizza Kitchen opened up another branch on Greenbelt 5 which is a very good choice because it's really accessible to weekend shoppers. Plus, the smoking area view is really nice as well, I'll post pics on another entry. Let's go to the food first.

Our orders:

Mediterranean Salad (P355)
with Add-on Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breast (P175)

Nice clean crispy veggies. I like the added chicken breast as well, it adds a little more flavor to the salad. You can ask for additional bbq sauce for the chicken as well.

Four Cheese Pizza (P525)

Really yummy. Surprisingly, we all liked this one. We were supposed to order the Five-Cheese pizza but mistakenly ordered this instead. We were not disapppointed at all.

We also ordered Fettuccine with Garlic Cream Sauce (P365) with add-on Sauteed Mushrooms (P275) but I was not able to take a pic of it because it was immediately eaten. ;P

We were all full right away and I blame the bottomless Iced Tea...

I shall be back again.. and this time I swear I won't wait for more than a year again. :)

ako naman, i've eaten at CPK only once and never eaten again. for me kasi ,it's not worth the money. in short, either it's the price is not worth the food or kuripot ako. he! he!

I love CPK although I haven't been to a branch for several years now. The only reason is that there isn't any that was within driving distance of my place. :-(

Glad to know that they now have one in Greenbelt 5. I'll check it out the next time I'm in Manila. Take care! :-)

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!

The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.

It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....

The Bontoc Musuem!

Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)

So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
